Not illustrated. 1828 edition. Excerpt: ...she had witnessed. The first day of the week, that is to say Easter day, early in the morning, the holy women, among whom Mary-Magdalen is ranked, as we have already mentioned at n 19, came to the sepulchre to deplore the death of their divine master; but the angels having informed them of his resurrection, they returned to Jerusalem to inform the apostles of what they bad been told. MaryMagdalen, scarcely believing what she had heard, remained at the tomb, and in turning round saw near her a man whom she knew not, and he said: . Woman, why weepest thou? For whom art thou seeking I - Believing him to be the gardener she replied: . It is you who have removed him, tell me where you have concealed him that I may take him away. - Jesus then said: - Mary... - This holy woman, struck by the manner in which he pronounced her name, remembered the voice of him whom she had so well loved, and threw herself at his feet saying rabboni, that is to say master. But Jesus said: - Touch me not, fori have not yet ascended to my father, but hasten to my brethren, and tell them that I go to my father and to your father, to my God and to your God. - It is this last scene that Pierre de Cortoni has represented. The expression of Mary-Magdalen well the pourtrays surprise that she felt in seeing a person whom she believed to be dead, and the unexpected happiness that her soul felt in hearing the voice of one whom she had loved so devotedly. In fine, to leave no doubt respecting the place where the scene occurred, in the back-ground to the left the painter has drawn the sepulchre on which two angels are placed.
